Vertu Constellation - Android

After launching its first Android-powered smartphone earlier in the year, Vertu follows with its second: the Constellation.

Powered by a customized take on Google's Android 4.2 OS, the new Constellation boasts a slew of awesome specs -- including a Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 32GB of built-in storage, a 4.3-inch 720p display, and a 13-megapixel camera.

Its body is made of Grade 5 titanium, which is wrapped by soft calf leather, while the screen is crafted from tough sapphire glass.

Aside from performance and style, Vertu helps protect its customers via various technology partnerships. This includes encrypted communications via Silent Circle, global Wi-Fi access via iPass, personal and corporate security with Protector Services Group, and anti-virus by Kaspersky. And, as always, the Vertu Key enables instant access to the company's 24-hour concierge service, offering worldwide assistance recommendations and priority bookings.

All this doesn't come cheap though. The Constellation retails for a staggering $6,630. For more info, visit Constellation.Vertu.Com.
